The church of Sappey-en-Chartreuse has been a symbolic landmark for nearly nine centuries, at the entrance to a mountain range marked by religious spirituality. Attested on the site since 1115, the building was redesigned in the 17th century and then in the 19th century with the help of the monks of the Grande Chartreuse. The eight stained glass windows that adorn the church are the work of Arcabas. They represent the Resurection of Christ and were made by Christophe Berthier, a master glass artist from Grenoble.
